When do we move on?

A story in the Washington Citypaper about the, well, tacky memorials people put up at the site of a beloved person's death.

I remember a huge knock-down drag out about this one on B-net a couple of years ago. I was solidly on the "take 'em down after two months" camp. But there are a lot of different positions one can take on this question of respect for the dead vs respect for the living. I have to say that I find myself feeling for both sides when reading this story.


Ps. The City Paper also has a really over the top corrections policy that makes sure to humiliate the writer who made the mistake. This letter points out how much their editor sucks for this.
